About me

Dr Kat Schneider is a researcher in exercise and health psychology. She obtained a bachelor’s degree in Sports Science with Management (BSc Hons, First Class) and a master’s degree in Psychology (MRes, Distinction) from Loughborough University. Her master’s thesis investigated the acute effect of exercise, yoga, and non-active distraction on the urge to binge eat. In 2019, she completed her PhD at Liverpool John Moores University looking at the role of mindfulness in physical activity. Most recently, she was working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Jyväskylä in Finland in the areas of exercise psychology, motivation, and behaviour change.  

Aside from her postdoctoral research, Kat has also been involved in the Crisis and Pandemic Interest Group at Liverpool John Moores University and conducted reviews on the impact of pandemics on the psychological well-being of healthcare workers and the effect of inequality on mental health disparities during the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Passionate about sharing scientific findings with non-academic audiences, Kat is the founder of the blog Maybe Mindful and the assistant editor of Meditation-Research.org.uk.
